handbuilt ales & eats

bringing together the art of food & beer.


Deliciously crafted food + never filtered, naturally carbonated ales.

At BRU handbuilt ales & eats award-winning Beer Chef / Founder Ian Clark pairs his passion and knowledge for sustainably crafted food with his never filtered, naturally carbonated ales. Some dishes even use beer (or the ingredients) like the BRU Wood Roasted Sourdough Pizza made with ipa tomato sauce, ale sausage, kale, and smoked shallots. The beers nod to Ian’s kitchen career as well; Obitus American Brown Ale handbuilt with roasted dates and caramelized sugar or his Citrum IPA handbuilt with fresh lemon zest and juniper are just a few of the 14 rotating ales on tap. 

Located in Boulder’s up and coming East Boulder neighborhood with ample parking and a range of seating options, including dining room tables, a chef’s counter, bar and patio. Open daily for lunch and dinner and all day happy hour every Tuesday.
